Aurichalcite in Calcite
Ojuela Mine, Mapimi, Durango, Mexico
Small Cabinet, 5.8 x 4.5 x 3.9 cm
2 well-formed rhombs of calcite, to 1.75 cm across, which are heavily invested with fibrous aurichalcite, site nicely in this vug! The crystals are glassy and translucent to transparent, with an exceptional teal color. Since the rhombs are large, showy, and colorful, this specimen exhibits all the characteristics of a fine competition level specimen.
